Of course, you may already know but everywhere's always different on a bike. Here's my blog on touring the island a few years ago:

The IOW was somewhere I had considered, I googled best places to ride before starting this thread and it came up in the results a couple of times .... my 1st thought was I didn't remember it as being fairly flat but as it's on my doorstep I'm sure I'll do it one day in the relatively near future.
I'm going to start picking one / two a year working my way through them ... really looking forward to getting out and seeing some different scenery and hope others find the replies / info useful to them as well and A HUGE thank you to everyone for all their input
